Enjoyable Dikshitar Krithis, with lyrics

Dikshitar Krithis with lyrics


Any admirer of Carnatic Music would definitely appreciate and enjoy the
lyrics of the Great MUTHUSWAMI DIKSHITHAR,
one of the three trinities of Carnatic Music. Muthuswami Dikshithar was born in
the year 1775 as the eldest son of
Ramaswami Dhikshithar abd Subbamma at Thiruvarur in Tanjore District of
Tamilnadu.

He created about 500 compositions in total. Most of his songs are widely sung
by Carnatic Musicians in their performances till today. Some of his krithis are set in rare ragas. The lyrics are in Sanskrit and most of them are easily understandable. The lyrics as such are very musical and very beautiful. All through his life, he had been travelling and had visited most of the temples in South India. The songs written by him are on the deities of the temples he visited. The unique feature of his writings is that all his krithis are created in an
excellent manner.

Let us hear some of his popular songs here.
